Metallica Headlined Reading and Leeds Festival Sells Out!

Tickets for the 2008 Reading and Leeds Festivals have sold out in record time this year.

200, 000 weeekend tickets the two site and six stage event were sold within two hours of going on sale earlier this week.

Metallica, Rage Against The Machine and The Killers are all set to headline at the festivals which this year both celebrate anniversaries, the festival has taken place at Reading for 20 years and at the Leeds site for ten.

Melvin Benn, Managing Director of Festival Republic who run the festival said, “'I am over the moon! Absolutely thrilled. 20th year since we took over Reading after it had been bankrupt. 10th year since we created Leeds. The UK's biggest selling festival with the best bill on the planet this year sells out in less than 2 hours. Whoever is talking about a slump in festival popularity is talking rubbish. Long live Reading and Leeds!'”
